STARTERS: Survival is just the beginning…

I know a bunch of you LURVED the HUNGER GAMES (as much as I did) so I’m sharing a book that’s getting some great buzz. Word on the street is, Lissa Price has created something REALLY special with her YA futuristic thriller debut, STARTERS.

The tagline alone makes me salivate like a rabid animal. God HELP the UPS man if I don’t have it by Tuesday morning. Speaking of that…it’s coming out TOMORROW!!! Wheee! You should grab a copy and read it with me, then we can make tea, and braid each others hair, and everything.

Here’s the book blurb to whet your appetite:

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie’s only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie’s head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator’s grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations’ plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined.

Happy Friday the 13th!

IDEA TIME: I think we should all watch horror movies tonight. My vote’s on the original FRIDAY THE 13th. I mean, come on, it’s even got Kevin Bacon. And he gets the axe.

What’s your favorite scary movie?

sit back and wave through the daylight

Well, I purchased “Scrivener” yesterday and HOLY MOTHER I have no idea how I’ve lived without it for so long. It’s amazing. Like I sort of want to marry it and grow old together with it AMAZING.

Just look at how pretty it is:

If you write you should definitely check it out, the “Character Sketches” and notes and EVERYTHINGEVERYTHINGEVERYTHING else about it makes life so much more organized. My new WIP is not going to know what hit it.

But enough about that tech-y stuff – I’ve got a special song for you today. Let’s interwebs dance together for the first time in 2012. Yes?

HAPPY DAY TO YOU XOXO 

Countdown: 99 days until THE HUNGER GAMES hits theaters

I’m REALLY looking forward to the movie. I can’t wait to see how the screenwriters and actors and director and everyone else involved are going to bring this story to life. AND OMG THAT MEANS MY BIRTHDAY IS IN 97 DAYSSSSS. AND 2012 is almost here and and and…breathe.

Here’s the official trailer. What do you think? YAY or NAY? And more importantly, TEAM GALE OR TEAM PEETA???!!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer: Video

This was such a good read. SUCH A GOOD READ!!! I pre-ordered it and am so glad I did. If you haven’t read it yet, here’s a little visual stimuli. Happy reading, and happy Wednesday <33333’s.

Here’s the book blurb followed by the video: 

“Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.

There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.

She’s wrong.
